Superstar Mahesh Babu and Trivikram Srinivas combination is coming after 12 years with SSMB28. Mahesh fans were delighted that their favorite hero director duo was repeating for the third time.
But unfortunately, the film has seen several roadblocks in its initial stages. The first schedule hiccups, script changes, Mahesh being unhappy with the way the movie is shaping up, and last-minute cast and crew changes were some of the problems that delayed the project’s shooting.
This was not the first time Mahesh Babu film has undergone changes in the entire story. In fact, one of the biggest blockbusters in Mahesh career, Dookudu which was directed and written by Srinu Vaitla also faced similar issue. Even in that film the director initially locked a script which was 80% finalized, but the story was replaced before the team went to the shooting.
Vaitla had come up with an entirely new script within months and as we know the movie went on to become a major blockbuster in both of their careers, hence any change in the script is better to be done beforehand instead of regretting later.
Hence, the decision made by SSMB28 team can be said better and there is still sometime left to go to the sets which will help the writer and director Trivikram to make necessary changes and bring out the most effective script for their much awaited combination.
Pooja Hegde will be paired with Mahesh Babu in SSMB28. This will be the second time the two will be sharing the screen after Vamsi Paidipally’s Maharshi. SS Thaman will compose the music for this film, while Naveen Nooli will handle the editing duties.
